SB 660 - This act establishes a pilot program of urban early compulsory school attendance in the Kansas City Missouri School District. In that district, the compulsory attendance age would be lowered to age 5 years. The program establishes the same parental responsibilities, process for exceptions and penalties as are currently provided statewide for compulsory attendance of children ages 7 to 16 years. The school board shall report to the Commissioner of Education, no later than December 1, 2001, on the effectiveness of the pilot program.
This act is similar to SB 452 (1999).
